Pistone, who played for the Toffees 113 times between 2000 and 2007, believes that maximum effort is the minimum Everton fans will expect from their £27.5million signing.
"Moise will have to give 100 per cent to be loved. He is a player with great perspective, with huge potential and an education in Italian football.
"To become their main man he has to make the jump from being a squad player to one that can take them to trophies.
"It won't be easy but the city of Liverpool is a perfect place to improve his game. He will fall in love with it."
